The iPad Mini 4 Isn’t How Apple Advertised

When Apple announced the iPad mini 4 they advertised the device as a scaled down iPad Air 2, although the device has an A8 chip rather than the A8X found in the iPad Air 2. According to Ars Technica the A8 runs at 1.5 GHz, slightly faster than the 1.4 GHz A8 used in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Like the iPad Air 2, the iPad mini 4 also carries 2 GB of RAM. With the iPad mini 4 using a slower chip than the iPad Air 2 while still driving the same display resolution and similar other internals, performance won't be quite as good on the iPad mini 4.
